Your sustainability partner

Why we do what we do

CFP Green Buildings is an expert in the field of sustainability. We partner with companies and individuals to make their buildings more sustainable. Over the past 15 years, we have supported hundreds of clients to improve the energy efficiency and sustainability rating of thousands of buildings through offering consultancy services. To reach the Paris Agreement goals, scaling up is imperative. Therefore, in 2016, we started developing digital solutions to retrofitting real estate on a large scale. Providing insight into the status of the portfolio and outlining the business case empowers all stakeholders in buildings to improve the sustainability of their building by using existing maintenance budgets.

Our aim is to create a sustainable environment in which people are healthier, happier, and safer. We see sustainability not only as the best way but indeed the only way for us to continue to live on earth with 10 billion people.

Impact & Reach

Our work starts in the Netherlands, which is where we are based. We want to make every building and home more sustainable, because it’s only then that we can achieve the optimum result that we are aiming for. But our work doesn’t stop at the Dutch border: we’ve now made more than 400,000 buildings sustainable in nine countries. Since 2020 we partner with Lloyds Banking Group for the UK market and more international partnerships are in the making.

Sustainability can only be achieved through collaboration, in which we view our partners as sustainability managers. We offer online tools and have consultants ready to advise and answer questions, so that everyone can work on making a building more sustainable, whether it’s a home or office premises. Our first online tool was launched in collaboration with ING, and two other large Dutch banks – Rabobank and ABN AMRO – soon followed. Offering the insight tools free to their clients has helped improve the building stock’s quality in the lending book. Results up to 70% increase of assets with a green EPC in a couple of years have been achieved.

Track record & Partnerships

We innovate constantly and share our sustainability expertise with the Dutch and UK Green Building Councils, Green Finance Institute, and Saxion University of Applied Sciences. We do that in various ways, through scientific research, writing articles, and organising events such as the annual Green Buildings Event. We also organise “innovation days” and the annual Green Buildings Regatta sailing race.

Our clients include Lloyds Banking Group, HSBC, ING, Volksbank, BNG Bank, Rabobank, ABN AMRO, Academic Medical Centre Amsterdam (AMC), University Medical Centre (UMC) Utrecht, Vattenfall, large cities such as Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht, ministries, museums, and technology companies such as Croonwolter&dros and Unica. In addition to our mission to make buildings more sustainable, we make an active contribution to projects to combat climate change. That includes supporting and taking part in the 2 Degrees North Pole Expedition. CFP team members are also actively involved with the Maasai in Kenya and in the Nudge Global Impact Challenge.
